I found myself moving numbly through a day so surreal, the mood around me so somber, that I shrank from the weight of it with each passing hour. As reality crept in, my natural buoyancy, the Saggitarian optimism that speckles my every experience in stardust and fairy kisses, was creeping out.
Last night's election amounted to so much more than just a political loss. And as the dust settles and we take stock of all it means for our country moving forward, we need our allies in spirit more now than ever. For myself, I felt the presence of my mother totem, black bear, very near. She made herself known to me through more than one synchronicity today. She is the ferocious protector to my vulnerable inner child, the righteousness in my anger, the strength I need to weather the most brutal of seasons. And she is with me. And, of course, my crystal friends were also very active in my consciousness, reminding me to look to the mineral kingdom for the support I so desperately need to face our future with courage, dignity, and hope.
So I am posting this to remind you that in the wake of this very disturbing transition, we are not alone. We have each other and many allies to see us through. Here are a few friends from the mineral kingdom who are speaking up and asking to be our support moving forward.
